Peking Duck for 2 in Chinatown?

I'm usually a noodle-soup kind of person when it comes to Chinatown. Lately, DC mentioned a crave for Peking duck. There's just the 2 of us - are there restaurants in Chinatown that serves a 2-person portion? Preferably part of a set menu? Do I need to call ahead to reserve? TIA

  1. New Jumbo on Hudson serves a Peking duck "2 styles" w/ pancakes, crispy skin, and meat & bean sprout stirfry on the side. One duck feeds 2-3 people. You can also order 1/2 duck but there is no stirfry included. No need to order in advance. If you prefer steamed buns instead of pancakes, Peach Farm does a decent version. Another option (but not Chinatown) would be to do the two-person duck at Salts.

    1. Not sure if you know both King fung, and china king does a 3 (skin with pancakes, soup, and stir fried noodles with duck meat off the bone) course meal with peking duck given 24 hour notice. I have liked King fung, but haven't been to china king yet, plenty leftovers to take home.

        I'm looking for more of a set menu with other dishes + traditional peking duck. But I guess the King Fung/ China King all-duck 3-course menu will suffice. BUT - is that menu designed for a whole table (like 8-10?) I like duck but don't want to be eating it every day for the next 2 weeks!

          I think Doris told me the CK three-course Peking duck serves 2-3. I always get other dishes along with it, some vegetables, noodles, and such, which makes it more of a feast. It probably starts as a three- to four-pound whole duck; it's not a monster.

            Given the size of the place, I don't think they even have a table that would seat 8-10! I haven't had it there yet, but it's run by the former KF owners, so I think it may be portioned similar to what they had in the past.

              I'm sure CK could arrange that. They've got one big round table that seats 8, I think.


        2. China King is the new spot from the former King Fung Garden owners. Terrific housemade noodles and dumplings. I have not had the foresight yet to order Peking duck, but I plan to very soon. (They still own KFG-2 in Brookline, too.)
